There will be no NRL games on this week with the Test and City/Country getting a stand alone weekend, but the prices for Round 8 are up and running. There hasn't been anything to report in early trading, and we wouldn't expect there to be until after the two games at the weekend.

The Test has created plenty of headlines with James Tamou playing for Australia. That should ensure extra viewers even though the game will be delayed for television (starts 18.15 AEST) on Friday night. Tattsbet opened Australia at $1.38, but that was quickly snapped up. The Kiwi's have eased out to $3.20, and while we are seeing bets come through for them, the numbers are small. Even the line of +8.5 hasn't been viewed as attractive, so we suspect that Australia will probably shorten up a bit. New Zealand have beaten Australia before, but lining up the two sides on paper it is hard to see it happening this week.

The City v Country game has had controversy as well with Danny Buderus withdrawing with an injury. This fixture is normally quiet as it is often played the same time that the Tests are on, but this year the match will be played in Mudgee on Sunday afternoon. There was a significant betting move for Country in the first 24 hours of trading which saw the price move from an opening $1.60 into $1.50. As a result of that City have drifted out to $2.65, and the line has been set at 6.00. All of the usual bets types that are available on NRL games will be available on both of these matches.
